The history of Rederij P. Kooij
A brief history of a 100% Amsterdam family business. It all started with Piet Kooij; a young Amsterdam entrepreneur who - together with his father - leased the buffets on the ferries that sailed the North sea canal from Amsterdam to IJmuiden. Water, boats and Amsterdam were the three major passions of Piet and he greatly enjoyed his work.
Rederij P. Kooij owns six different types of canal boats. Check our fleet for more information and to get an impression of our boats.
